Gay Guy to Bigot: Interesting Word Choice with 'Back Door'

Straight Guy,

I love it when people do my work for me. Sadly, it never happens during the day -- 2010 has been a nightmare so far. But every so often, people who make me angry make fools of themselves before I can. It takes some of the fun out of my life, but it's validating.

Imagine my utter joy to read this recent Baltimore Sun article. Synopsis: Maryland State Delegate Emmett Burns introduced legislation to ban recognition of same-sex marriages performed in other states and countries. Burns is trying to beat potential pressure when neighboring District of Columbia's same-sex marriage law goes live in March.

The quote I love:

"The issue is knocking on our doors," Burns said. "People will be flying over here, wanting to force us to accept their marriage licenses."

"Our back door is open, and it needs to be closed."

Yeah, Dude, you might wanna squeeze up your back door before the newly minted homo couples turn up.

Oh my! You had me rolling on the floor laughing at that one. Talk about your poor word choices. Or was that just his fear talking? Or maybe his curiosity...

Great chuckle before going to bed.

I vote with Spot - he's obviously spent a lot of time thinking about his back door.

Another vote for "protests too much."

HA! He left himself WIDE OPEN with that one!

Fantastic, pity the irony is lost on all those overly concerned about their 'back door'. Hope you are doing well - have been busy lately and not had much time to enjoy your blog. Thanks for sharing.
